Workshop Abstracts

Saturday

A1. Cultural Diversity, Education and Dignity: Women Globally. We live in a society consisting of various ethnic groups. Therefore, understanding each other is very important in order to facilitate collaboration and cooperation. A panel of speakers of different ethnicities will speak about the importance and positive outcomes of cultural diversity. Presented by Indrani Chatterjee, Chair, International Advocacy Committee.

 A2. A Roadmap for Branch Financial Management: All Your Questions Answered. In this workshop, a panel of peers and experts will show ways of making a branch finance officer’s job easier. Using examples from branches, issues of budgeting, accounting, reviews, taxes, membership dues and fundraising will be covered. It is a very important area, as inability to recruit a treasurer or handle finances adequately can lead to branch closure. Presented by Roli Wendorf, Chief Financial Officer, AAUW California.

A3. Diversity and Inclusion: Sexual Orientation and Gender Identify. Approximately 10 million adults identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). Inclusion of SOGI questions on official surveys is crucial to identify the demography and disparities in populations.What is SOGI? Come learn the answer and all the myriad complexities involved with sexual orientation and gender identity. Presented by Ellyn Bloomfield, RCFE, LGBTQ Senior Peer Counseling Coordinator, Peninsula Family Service.

 A4. How to Effect Real Change: A Guide to GOTV (Get Out the Vote) and Legislative Visits. Learn about connecting with legislators about AAUW priorities during this important election year. See how to maintain ongoing communication and benefit from hearing the successful experience of one AAUW California branch. Receive specific guidelines that govern permissible activities carried out in the name of AAUW, and how to develop messaging based on AAUW California public policy priorities. Learn about preparing voter guides, holding candidate forums, get-out-the-vote techniques, and collaborating with other groups in coalitions. Presented by Sue Miller, AAUW California Co-Chair, Public Policy Committee and Susan Karlins, San Jose Public Policy.

 A5. Keeping in Touch with your Tech Trekkers and Local Scholarship Winners – and Why You Should. Very experienced Tech Trek staff and active branch members will share successful ways to track down your former campers and local scholarship winners. Learn why this is significant for the branch and for the young women whose lives we have changed. Presented by Carol Holzgrafe, AAUW California Director.

 A6. The New and the Tried and True. Join the AAUW California Fund Committee and our panel of experts to learn what is “new” and what is happening with our “tried and true” Fellowships & Grants program. Branch AAUW Fund VP’s will learn about new programs made possible with the Greatest Needs Fund along with valuable information and tools. Presented by Dianne Owens, President-Elect, Chair, AAUW California Fund Committee.


 

 Sunday

B1 Risk Management and ADA – Not Your BFF! ADA is not the name of your new AAUW Best Friend Forever! It’s the acronym for the Americans with Disabilities Act and an important set of state and national laws that are critical for AAUW members to understand when hosting meetings, events or activities in public or private venues. Presented by Susan Negrete, AAUW California State Co-Coordinator Tech Trek Program.

 

B2 Understanding Diversity and Unconscious Bias. For effective external outreach to grow membership and diversity and inclusion (D&I) in membership, we must have a better understanding of diversity, including how issues surrounding unconscious bias can impact our organization’s composition. This workshop provides attendees with a personal understanding of these issues, to make membership outreach more sustainable. Presented by AAUW California Diversity Committee.

B3 Beyond the Newsletter! How to Promote Your Branch Events. “Oh, I didn’t know about that.” How many times have you heard that comment? How can you get the word out? We’ll explore an arsenal of publicity tools to promote branch events to your members and to the public. Get ready to learn step by step how to use familiar instruments like press releases, Facebook, Evite, and Eventbrite along with some exotic ideas like a Branch Buzz, robocalls, Nextdoor, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram and even the U.S. Postal Service. You know the old adage: “Throw enough mud at the wall and some of it will stick.” Attend this workshop to get some throwing skills. Presented by Sandi Gabe, AAUW California Director, and members of the Communications Committee.

B4 Impact Future Members on Campus. Attendees will be updated on Work Smart and Start Smart presentations, including how you can get involved. Become acquainted with successful campus recruitment ideas and the benefits to student leaders to create an AAUW student organization or club on a campus. You will be enlightened by a National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) student who will share her experiences and the importance of sending students to this conference. Presented by Donna Lilly, AAUW California Past President, Chair, State College/University Committee and Lee Winocur Field, State C/U Committee Member.

 

B5 “Gov Trek” How to Rock the Next Generation. Sometimes it’s tempting to wonder why we still need an organization like AAUW in the year 2020. Why are we still fighting for gender equity? Why are we still fighting for social justice for women and girls? One branch thinks the answer may be that we don’t have enough women in positions of power, and they have developed an innovative program to attempt a solution. This workshop will introduce you to GovTrek, a program designed to encourage high school junior and senior girls to consider a career in politics and to pursue a related course of study in college. The presenter will take participants step-by-step through the development and implementation of the program, as well as lessons learned. Join us and learn how to “rock the next generation.” Presented by Kathi Harper, AAUW California Director, Co-Chair, Public Policy Committee.

B6 Engagement Promotes Action and Membership Growth. How do we as AAUW leaders support engagement of members and potential members? It is easy to think that we do this, but how successful are we at true engagement that results in action? The AAUW strategic plan calls for moving beyond aspirations. Engagement in branch projects helps us to do that. When we are engaged in a project that supports our mission, there is purpose and commitment with a reason to belong.   In talking with prospective members, mission-based engagement and commitment are important in their decision to join. Actions are critical to our success and engagement of members and prospective members is the key. Presented by Elaine Johnson, AAUW California Director, Chair, Leadership Committee.
